This book covers the principles and practice of combining acupuncture points - expanding a practitioner's repertoire and increasing their skills - enabling them to use a balanced and appropriate choice of points in the treatment of patients. Information on the combination of the main points of the fourteen channels is covered in the book prior to outlining specific point combinations for selected disease syndromes. Discussion of combining points according to dermatome theory and according to the energy centres of the body is also discussed, as is combining points for the mind end emotions, and for lifestyle and behaviour. No existing book covers this aspect of clinical practice in such thorough and wide-ranging detail.
